    • At 0:55, little Hillary’s picture looks like a child that already has murder on her mind. Or perhaps in her immediate past. Seriously. I hope that little girl was never allowed to babysit.

      Overall, the Democrats (and their slaves and white-knight protectors, the Republican’ts) haven’t been this angry and unhinged since a real Republican freed their slaves.

      Still not tired of winning. I wish we could get an accurate tally of all the actual legal votes for Trump. None of the duplicates, none of the dead people votes, none of the felon votes, none of the non-American-citizen votes, and re-counting the feloniously tossed-out military votes and those mysteriously lost votes from gerrymandered Red districts. I bet Trump beat Reagan by a landslide, only counting the real, legal votes.

      I hope I live to see a reckoning.

    Trump’s mature decision to nominate Brett Kavanaugh

    The closest I came to a prediction was when I commented:

    The β€œrational” me says someone in Trump’s position would take the safe pick, Kavanaugh. Barring a skeleton in the closet, he’ll be confirmed before the First Monday in October.

    But I suspected that Amy Coney Barrett would be the nominee because of the politics of the anti-Catholic bigotry focused against her. And it certainly would have made for amazing political theater. But Trump took the rational and mature approach.

    That maturity has been the hallmark of Trump’s approach to reshaping the judiciary. And we will benefit from that maturity for a generation to come.

      Agreed though I wouldn’t say it’s a ‘mature’ choice, it’s a calculated choice to maximize his chances of having his choice confirmed as quickly as possible with a minimum of bother and maybe attract a few Dems he needs as leverage against recalcitrant Republicans. There’s also that bit about using the votes for/against Rat Senators running in red-leaning states, especially as they were for his confirmation previously. It’s the art of the deal.
      The Usual Media Suspects have already started a slander campaign against Kavanaugh, Bozos apparently had junk sreeds already primed, all he had to do was add a nominee’s name.

      Dick Durbin is making an ass of himself
      By Monica Showalter – July 9, 2018

      Can Dick Durbin stifle himself for a bit? The vaunted senator from Illinois is saying one absurd thing after another, putting the jackass back big into the Democratic Party label.

      The continued slide into insanity is going to cost them. Conisder, if you will, what I think was the most driving force behind the election of Donald Trump, candidate, first getting the nomination, then winning the election. A huge number of people such as those of us here had been pushed to the limit. We saw little difference between the Republicans and the Democrats, and the eight years of Obama dictatorship and Democrat abuse were a motivating factor to people who previously maybe voted, and were low information.

      I don’t think most have those people have gone back into hibernation. I don’t think the Never Trumpers, the constant attacks, the physical violence, the Maxine Waters led hysteria and the constant race to the bottom by the Democrats, both elected officals, party leaders, celebrities, and on the street thugs, is going unnoticed. I think there will be further backlash by those of us who are being told our votes shouldn’t count.

      The hell with them all, I’m ready to fight.

      • Afternoon Menagerie. The lefties and Never Trumpers are really losing their minds right now. I think the nuttier they become, the more moderates will peel off and come over to Pres. Trump. It’s crazy to witness, though.

          Today’s painting is “The Schooner Mystic Passing Latimer Reef Light, Fisher’s Island Sound” 1925 by Russ Kramer. I love how the sunlight comes through the sails and onto the sparkling water. A method of learning to paint is to copy great art. In doing that, an important thing I have learned is how just a very small amount of highlight, such as the bright yellow-green in the top of the wave hitting the schooner, can make that area of the painting and even the whole painting brighter and more complete. It is just amazing.

          I had to find one that was under 700 pixels, not huge πŸ™‚

          Email is still not working

          I have to re-enter all my info after each comment. Before as long as I did not leave Stella’s, the info stayed. Have yet to figure it out. Have too much real world life to work to do right now.
          Have a great day everyone!

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
